If there’s a quintessential brunch dish it is without question a quiche. This lovely pie filled with eggs, cheese, and vegetables is a timeless classic. The egg and cheese combination is the perfect backdrop for a wide variety of fillings. While it’s super convenient to just pick one up at the grocery store, it’s actually pretty easy to make one right in your own kitchen. Not only that, it will be wonderfully fresh.
A quiche needs just a handful of main ingredients: eggs, cheese, milk, and a sturdy crust. The first ingredient speaks for itself, you gotta have eggs. Now for the dairy: cheese is a must, and pretty much any cheese works, so choose something that goes with the “theme” of your quiche. Next comes the milk. Half-and-half or heavy cream is essential, too, and adds so much silky richness to the eggy filling. An added bonus to our quiche mixture: bacon and just lightly caramelized onion. They make this dish extra savory and amazing.
As with any pie (or in this case, quiche), the crust can make all the difference. You can use a storebought pie crust or make your own, and, just so you know, a scratch-made crust is also super easy to make and any extra dough may be frozen to use later. Check out our recipe for a No Fuss Pie Crust.
So, you’ve got a brunch with friends coming up and you want to make one item. Go ahead and have someone else bring the cinnamon rolls and fresh fruit while you whip up this easy cheesy spinach quiche. If you’re a rookie cook looking to tackle some classic dishes, then a quiche is a great place to start. It can be made ahead of time and reheated for later, it’s often a crowd pleaser, and it’s great on the spot training for your culinary skills. A cheesy spinach and bacon quiche is a great way to share a great meal with good friends.
